In the mid-nineteenth century, the Wild West grabbed ahold of American consciousness and never let go. With the discovery of gold, all eyes and wagons turned westward. This collection of stories brings readers back to the American frontier. In "The Luck of Roaring Camp," when a Native American woman dies in childbirth, the miners take it upon themselves to raise the child. Naming the baby Luck, the miners learn more about responsibility and class through raising the boy than they have through anything else in their lives. Other stories in the collection include classic prospecting-set short stories such as "Tennessee's Partner" and "The Outcasts of Poker Flat" and the short novels "Muck-a-Muck" and "Selina Sedilia." In this timeless collection, Bret Harte has captured the California gold rush as no other writer could
